I'm reading The Power of Now for the first time and I'm about half way through it. I never thought it would be as powerful as it is. No, there is nothing new about the teachings, just newly applied by myself.
What I've noticed, first of all, is the immediacy of the effects. The effects are powerful and immediate. There is no waiting for anything to happen, it just does, in the moment. What do I experience when I put the book's teachings to use?
Everything becomes extremely vivid. I can think extremely clearly. When I look at people, I can see....I can see...beyond the skin. It's a if I am seeing the inner person. People seem to act happier and nicer to me. People who normally would be considered physically unattractive suddenly seem really attractive in a way I cannot express (yes, very shallow of me, I know). The same thing happens when I look around at the forms around me. A tree is no longer just a tree. It actually is...more (difficult to explain). Interestingly, when I give the present moment my full attention, time changes. I can accomplish more in record time. I arrive at destinations on time, or ahead of time, without rushing, etc. The whole thing is like a walking meditation.
The best I can describe it as is to think back on the last time you experienced an extremely intense situation, such as a life-threatening situation. Your mindset of being completely in the moment, thinking extremely clearly, time altering, etc. Now, picture all of that without the fear or negativity...only intense peace. An incredible experience.
Then, while reading The Power of Now, it dawned on me that the concepts may be applied to LoA. As I meditate, I apply the Tolle concepts and immediately my mind is able to focus without extraneous thoughts coming in. My meditations become extremely productive. And, as mentioned earlier, visualizing in the present tense becomes a heck of a lot easier.
I really don't see The Power of Now and LoA as contradictory. In fact, just the opposite: being in the present has taken my LoA practice up to a whole new level.
